White bus leaving

I’m really pleased with this shot. To me, it’s quintessential street photography. It’s simple, with really only three main elements – the bus, the woman and the crosswalk. Yet there’s a story there, if you wish to see it. Perhaps … Continue reading

Scooter in the rain

This is sort of a good example of making a photo rather than taking a photo. I’d come across this interesting set of stairs and knew it would make a great element in my photo, but I needed more. Either … Continue reading

Halloween on Church St

So they closed a couple of blocks of Church St here in Toronto for a big Halloween celebration. For those not familiar with Toronto, Church Street is where they hold the big Pride parade each summer. Anyway, I went down … Continue reading

Kensington Market, late afternoon

I’m always a fan of using shadows within my composition. In this case those shadows are acting like leading lines that draw you into the scene. I also like how the late afternoon sun has sun-kissed the photo, splashing lovely … Continue reading

March against Extinction

So last weekend I caught up with a group protesting ivory trade and the looming extinction of elephants and rhinos. It’s sad we still have to march to raise awareness for this sort of stuff. One would hope we’d have … Continue reading

Little bridge & waterfalls

I met a friend yesterday at this big park in midtown Toronto called Edwards Gardens. It’s a beautiful place. Haven’t been in literally a couple of decades. Brought along the camera and managed to get a couple of shots I … Continue reading
